MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer – Atomic

January 8, 2014


I’ve been lusting after Limecrime’s Velvetines for a long while now, but can in no way justify buying one, so when I saw this MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer and how similar it seemed to be, I jumped on it. As pretty much everyone who is into beauty will know, MUA is a brilliant value for money, and this product is no different at only £3.

I bought the shade ‘Atomic’, I did fancy the pink shade ‘Funk’ a bit more, but my Superdrug didn’t have it.  This red shade is a perfect ‘classic red’, it worked very well for me over the festive period. The packaging is also very lovely, I’m a big fan of frosted glass or glass effect, so I was very impressed with these. The packaging makes it seems so ‘classy’ and understated.
MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer definitely lives up to it’s ‘velvety’ name. They glide on very easily, and don’t bleed much. Anything I put on my lips tend to bleed a little bit though, so I have ended up using a lip liner a few times. They have a pretty good wear-time as well, but I did notice it flaking off a little bit and leaving my lips a little bit dry after about an hour or so. I have however both eaten and had a few drinks (and maybe a few kisses) with this on, and only needed to retouch once, pretty impressive!
If you’re into Rimmel London’s Apocalips, but fancy a matte version I’d fully recommend these, just make sure you use a good lip balm before and after.  I will definitely be purchasing more colours.
What was your go-to colour this festive season?
Do you love the lip lacquer’s that have been coming out a lot recently?

    I usually prefer something a bit darker for myself, but this bright shade looks gorgeous against your pale skin. <3

    You have such a cute blog, I've just started following you!
    This shade looks really good on you, I want to try them but there doesn't seem to be a nude everyday shade.
